EXcub factors in the ALCS: Bill Mueller
Bill Mueller was a fan favorite the short two years he wore the Cub pinstripes. Last year he won the AL batting title hitting .326 for the Red Sox. 2003 was Mueller's best season in MLB.
Mueller played with the Northsiders in 2001 and 2002. The most memorable play from Mueller's Cub career was a play in St. Louis in 2001. Mueller was off to a fine start for the Cubs-.batting .317 w/5 HR, 16 RBI and 24 R in 36 G. He collided with the wall at Busch Stadium and shattered his patella. Just another play among many forgettable ones for the Cubs at Busch Stadium over the years. (When do they blow that place up?)
Mueller has been a cobtributor to Red Sox success the past two years. This year he put up these numbers: 110 G, 399 AB, 75 R 113 H, 27 2B, 1 3B, 12 HR, 57 RBi, 51 BB, 56 SO, 2 SB, .365 OBP, .446 SLG, .283 AVG. Mueller is a .292 lifetime hitter with 1049 Hits
